Haruka to Miyuki – Knife

Lyrics: Haruka
Song: Haruka to Miyuki
Translation: Kafka

The calming midday sunlight shines
In the corner of my head, only hatred grows

A body full of chances, floating words
If possible, I want to just smile and send off everything

Putting away the knife I reached out innumerable times
I’ll search for its toy substitute

I don’t know what I had lost.
Stabbed by a knife with someone’s rust
Even now, it’s still there that I still can’t pull it out
I can’t forget the pain

Events that I swallowed in one try
Right now, becomes a black lump at the back corner of my mouth

I divert the knife away from what I should face
Instead, point it with its toy substitute

I’ll live in a harmless and inoffensive way
After all, in this narrow world,
I feel everything will be lost
Grasping the knife in hand

I have become blind, even so I walked on
Since it’s the one and only promise
Materializing things that was not there
As I suffer all the sadness

Kanji:

穏やかな昼間の差し込んだ日差しに
頭の片隅で憎しみばかり育つ

隙だらけの体 浮かんでくる言葉
できるなら全てを笑って見送りたい

何度も手を伸ばしたナイフをしまって
代わりのおもちゃを探す

失うことを知らない誰かの
錆びついたナイフが刺さって
今になっても抜けずにいるから
痛みが忘れられない

一度は飲み込んだ出来事が今更
喉の奥の方で黒い塊になる

向き合うべきものからナイフをそらして
代わりのおもちゃに向ける

当たり障りのないように生きて
所詮こんなに狭い世界で
きっと全てを失う気がした
ナイフは握れずにいる

見えなくなった それでも歩いた
たった一つの約束だから
なかったことになってく全ての
悲しみを抱えてゆく
